I live in NZ and as such doing any genealogy in the UK is really really hard, especially when records only go so far and I have details prior to these. In saying this, I am hoping that there is someone out there is is related to my Stucks and can help me with info.
My John STUCK b 24 December 1803 in Colne Engaine, Essex, married Mary Ann REYNOLDS c1830. Mary Ann was b 22 October 1811 in Braintree, Alpamstone, Essex. Mary Ann d 22 October 1880 in Alphamstone, Essex and John d 24 December 1880 in Alphastone, Essex.
Johns parents were Henry & Susan. I do not know Susan's surname or anything about these two. I have got the 1841 census which tells me that Henry was born 1778 and Susan 1788 but other than this, I'm at a lost.
John & Henry are my 4th & 5th great grandfather respectively. Henry had three children that I can find, John, Samuel (b 1805) & Charles (b 1806). John and Mary Ann were bunnies and had 11 children (James b 1833, Samuel b 1836, Joseph b 1838, Edmund b 1840, Caroline b 1841, Mary Ann b 1842 d 3 days later, George b 1845 died one week later, George b1847 died 4 days later, Benjamin b 1849, Mary Ann b 1852 died 10 days later, Arthur b 1861). From what I can gather only James Reynolds b 1833 (my 3rd great grandfather) came to New Zealand.
Can anyone help me on how to go forward on this? According to the census Henry & Susan lived at Lodge Gate, Gosfield, which is in the Parish of Gosfield Enum. District.
I'm sorry but I don't have any information further back than Henry and Susan. But I too am a descendant of James and Hannah Stuck. Their daughter Esther Hanna Maria was my great grandmother. I'm also getting excited about finding all this out. so I wanted to say thank you for the new information that your post has provided and to wish you all the best in your search.
Gregor Stuckel (Stukel) b. 1828/9 Bohemia/Austria married Katherine Kotschevar b.1838 Austria in 1850. They immigrated in 1873 with 3 children, Marie, Jacob, and Katherina. They lived in Newark NJ for a couple of years where their 4th child, Joseph, was born. In 1876 they moved to Leaf Mountain, Otter Tail Cnty MN (near Millerville MN, where Mathias Kotschevar lived). In 1905, the Gregor Stuckel family moved to Lake Lenore, SK Canada. Gregor died Sep 21 1910 in Lake Lenore and Katherine died Nov 30 1932. Both are buried in the catholic church graveyard in Lake Lenore. Stuckel was often spelt Stukel (MN land record). They had 7 children. My grandfather is Jacob G Stuckel. Please contact me using Kathryn.email@example.com email address or firstname.lastname@example.org I have found the names Stuckel and Kotschevar mentioned in a 1700's list of Semtish villages in the Crain region of Slovenia. There is also a town in southeastern Europe, kocevar, which has a similar sound as Kotchevar or Hochevar.
